Amazing Helicopter Sightseeing Tours of New York City

One of the single most amazing ways to experience the city of New York is by flight.  No, not the flights that stop at JFK or LaGuardia – the ones that begin and end on a helicopter.  Since New York is known for its savior faire and sophistication, why not enjoy it in style through a helicopter tour around the peninsula. These sightseeing tours are amazing.  Here are a few things to consider when putting together your perfect helicopter excursion in New York City!

What to Expect
Picture this!  Close your eyes, spread your wings and take flight as you soar above the New York Harbor to see all of the Big Apple’s most riveting sights. You can expect between 15-20 minutes of pure thrill! And, if you’re fortunate to have a professional flight crew, you will have a most interactive and stress-free experience.  Depending on the route and company that you select, you’ll be intrigued to get that breathtaking bird’s eye view of Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Governors Island, the Verrazano Bridge, Midtown and a host of art deco skyscrapers that define why New York is the Empire State!

How Much Will It Cost?
You can expect to pay anywhere from $150 plus per person for the helicopter ride.  Keep in mind that each company that offers such an excursion may have additional fees.  Additionally, it may prove helpful to check out the websites of a few companies because there may be discount packages available and possibly even coupons.  Furthermore, it might be a good idea to contact the company directly to see if they offer packages in conjunction with museum tours or hotels.

Photo Opportunities
You might want to check the policy on taking photos outside of the helicopter (i.e. when boarding or when de-boarding).  Usually, once sightseeing tours begins, photo opportunities are plentiful.  So there are a full 15-20 minutes of premium opportunities to take unique, pitch perfect photos. It is no secret that the views will be utterly breathtaking, and the ability to see nearly all of the more famous buildings in a short time frame will be available.

If you are looking to book an amazing tour, why not consider a helicopter company for one of your sightseeing tours.  The experience promises to be surreal and unforgettable.
